The Success of your Program is our Business!
The University of New England offers two distinctive settings to host your event.
Our Biddeford Campus is located on a picturesque site in Biddeford, Maine, where the Saco River flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Our Portland Campus in Portland, Maine is designated a national historic district and is quintessential New England, with a central green surrounded by classic brick buildings.
Both our seaside campus and our suburban campus are equipped to host a wide variety of meetings, conferences, camps, and formal gatherings.
Certified by the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors International to supply “One-Stop Shopping,” the UNE Office of Conference Services provides superior customer service in every aspect of planning and executing your event:
• Start with a site visit of campus based on YOUR availability with our professional team.
• Easy access to a wide range of meeting spaces and venues to best accommodate your group's needs.
• Catering services provided by Parkhurst Catering where the friendly staff and experienced culinary team pride themselves in building personal relationships and providing authentic culinary experiences.

• Professional meeting and event team that works with you not only in the planning stages, but are there for all your needs while you are on campus. AV/IT need? Room set up change? Last minute overnight guest? Food allergies? We got you covered!
